Hey members of Congress, you are collecting record income tax revenues, figure out how to spend it responsibly and leave our gas taxes alone. You continually try to raise taxes due to your own ineptness in basic economics. Balanced budget ????
after all, tying payments to inflation worked so well with, say, healthcare, right?
what a feeble group of 'leaders' we have on both sides of the aisle.
Some money has been shifted from general revenue to the Highway Transportation Fund. Maybe they feel guilty from the years that they borrowed from it and never paid the amount back with interest. It all started to unwind when the Congress promised to end the donor/donee state fiasco and let every state keep the money that they collected in taxes. It was an impossible promise to keep without sending general revenue over to the Highway Trust Fund. Highway needs are more proportional to vehicle miles traveled and the number of lane miles in place, not the area-population ratio which has been around in some form or another for decades. It is bad management pure and simple but fixing it fairly seems impossible. I hate it, but toll roads would be operated more efficiently. The only problem is that the government has figured out how to screw even that up. Many roads don't make enough tax money to keep them in place, so we have consumptive roads and we have productive roads that make more tax money than they require. Some toll road deals make a large upfront payment to the state to take care of their consumptive inventory of rural roads and speculative economic development roads built to attract the next factory. Managing a road system is a financially complex task, beyond the patience and IQ of Congress.

Even if she is a “drone”, the real problem is the guy that issued the directives that violate federal law, he’s the one that should be in front of a congressional committee,

Obviously the LGBT group isn’t showing much love either.

I want to see the time that peace and war are more important than politics to this president and his administration, everything is politics to these guys,

Look, I’m not pro Obama or this administration, but in reality every mid-eastern country with a minimum of intelligence already knew this information.
Body armor is worthless against head shots, no matter what the caliber is.

Hillary new exactly what she was doing, it was she thought the American people would either not understand what she did or forget it by election time.
This lady is a bad player.

Yeah, but they make AR 15 pistols now, not trying to disagree with you cause I think this thing is way out of line. Will a .45 cal go thru a bullet proof vest? Its a lot bigger and heftier than a .223 cal
It's the speed that does it. Lot's of AR makers put out pistol forms.

Another way to keep our law enforcement officers safe, is to quit threatening to file a civil rights complaint anytime some one of color is harmed, in this administration it makes no difference if the offender is guilty. So now the police are not only worried about the thugs and criminals, but the Obama administration and the current Justice dept.

Bust her a s s, the lying p.o.s., and then do away with the entire IRS

Pay attention people, the guy in the White House is either a devout Muslim, or very pro Muslim.
He refuses to mention Islam with negative comments and now refuses to mention Christians as the victims of these horrible attacks.
Have you forgotten the old saw about the gauge of a man is the stature of his enemies.
I'd welcome an audit and put the IRS on trial! They have devolved into a RICO organization.

If the people don’t know that Mr. Obama is pro Muslim / anti American by now, they just haven’t been paying attention.
